There is talk on t'interweb that the Public Lending Rights (PLR) may be cut (i.e. the money paid to authors when their books are borrowed from a library). With the average author salary at £10,000 a year they need these funds to help top up their income.
I'm not a published author (yet) but, you know, I might be one day and you might be too (if you're not already!).
Petition to keep the PLR at their current levels. Sign here:
